    "This school definitely gets a much worse rap than it deserves, but even so, I have to admit that I would not send my kid here. The school isn t run by gangs, the amount of fist fights and misconduct is no more than any other school of the same size. The reason I say I would not send my kid here is because the school doesn t offer much to challenge students or prepare them for college. The majority of the students are well below grade level (by no fault of their own), this means that teachers have to spend lots of time working with those students to get them on track, which means, less time to challenge a gifted student, or even just a student who is at grade level. The school is really working hard to offer more challenging courses and they have done so with the medical pathway, however, with the level most students are at when they get her, there s only so much the school can do."

    "As a former student of Capital High School, I can honestly say that I was given the opportunities I needed to receive a good education and prepare myself for college. I was a classified 'gifted' student, and my teachers for all four years of my education worked closely with me to excel in my classes without becoming bored. I learned to be hard-working, self-motivated and willing to help my peers. All in all, I had a great experience there."

    "I have two children attending Capital and they are both doing very well. They are involved in extra curricular activities and have teachers who care and encourage and challenge them to do their best. I am saddened by the lack of parent and community support. The low numbers of parents attending their own child's sporting events is quite saddening. Our kids are working very hard to create a future for themselves and we should be there every step of the way to witness and share their wins and losses."

    "I just read the Sept 2003 parent letter complaining about the education her daughter received at Capital HS. I agree with the students who wrote that perhaps the daughter should have taken more challenging courses, and I wonder at the parent's lack of correct spelling - its instead of it's for 'it is,' CapitOl instead of CapitAl, etc. Education begins at home."

    "I am currently a student at Capital. It is my second year there and I really do love it. It is true that there are some gang activities and a few fights, but that is not the only thing that is going on there. There are teachers that care and try to get the students motivated. There are AP classes and many activities that you can take part in if you try. Capital has come a long way in the past few years. The basketball team is one of the best in New Mexico, along with their Drama department which has won first in state for the second year running. Your education is what you make of it, the school can only take you so far. If you do not want to learn, then it does not matter what school you go to. They will all be worthless."
